Default front end swap from 97 to 2005

I want to do a complete front clip swap. I have a 97 ranger but want the grille headlights and bumper of the 05. Is it possible? Do I have to swap any engine parts... radiator, ect...? I think I'd have to swap fenders.. any advice is good advice. Thanks

Yes, you will havta swap the whole front clip (fenders, hood, radiator support, header panel, bumper, and all will havta fabricate bumper brackets as they are different 98up.

Its been done a few times, you'd just have to search.......

GL and start a thread on your swap............
